For restoring old & vintage bikes this tire works great for all my ten speeds bikes. The price point is what keeps me rolling.

It had been so long since Id done much maintenance. on my bike. The tires were rotting on the rims. Put my bike in on my car when I took it to be repaired. When I went to ride it home found the front tire was flat. Now Im back in good shape again!

If you have 27 inch rims, this is the way to go Tan sidewalls, Black tred. Not only are the just like tires from the good old days, they have almost the same price!

Not durable

Bolingbrook, il

Although the tire is supposed to be desgned for rougher roads, i have had two tires fail with carcass tearing and splitting in one year, about 300 miles. I ride a mix of sidewalks, streets, paved paths, and crushed limestone. I inflate to the max, 85 psi. I weight 200 pounds. I didn't bash any curbs or potholes. But i do encounter the expected cracks, walnuts, etc. Tire is inexpensive, but not worth buying if it going to be so fragile. Don't be mislead by the sales description. Get some Continentals like i will be doing.

Bought a set June 2014, bike is kept indoors, and I've put less than 800 miles on them. Looked this weekend March 2016- the rear tire is splitting where the gum wall joins the black all around the tire on the rear one. The front tire is splitting here and there.
